. richard wolffe, thank you very much for joining me tonight. >> you bet, lawrence. >>> coming up, jon stuart cannot help himself. he can't help but make gay jokes about michele bachmann's husband. so he needs a therapist to help him pray away the gay jokes. that therapist is jerry seinfeld. >>> and when eric cantor says he will never vote for a tax increase of any kind, he is forgetting one little thing about his own record on taxes. luckily for him, and the political media has also forgotten it too. but i'll be reminding him and the political media of the day eric cantor voted to raise income taxes. that's in my "rewrite" tonight. in financial transactions... on devices... in social interactions... and applications in the cloud. some companies are worried. some, not so much. thanks to a network that secures it all and knows what to keep in, and what to keep out. outsmart the threats. see how at cisco.com cisco. the 3.6-liter pentastar v6 engine in the jeep grand cherokee has a best in class driving range of more than 500 miles per tank. which means you don't have to worry about findi
. jon huntsman hosted meet and greets in florida. the former utah governor calling the $14 trillion debt a cancer in america. in terms of reaching a deal, he said cooler heads would prevail while many candidates have focused their campaign efforts in iowa, huntsman emphasized why he wants to focus on florida. >> if you own florida, you woow the presidency. >> michele bachmann opened her iowa campaign headquarters yesterday. there she told voters not to believe -- saying the government has enough revenue to continue making payments. she also launched the t eed atte president's economic plan. >> we're now two years into president obama's recovery. president obama's recovery has a 9.2% unemployment rate. this is not working for millions of unemployed americans. >> speaking of michele bachmann, there's controversy surrounding a pledge supported by the congresswoman. bachmann signed a marriage vow that's drawn up by the conservative group the family leader which suggested that african-american children may have been better off during slavery. rick santorum also committed to that pledge. the g

not expect. jon huntsman said in may he would not self-finance his presidential campaign even though he's rich enough to do that, at least in large part. today he didn't have to file any campaign fund-raising information, because he hasn't been declared for very long, but did say he raised about $4 million and his campaign would just say that he did contribute to his own coffering here. all they'll say, it wasn't a majority. only that what he gave is less than half. jon huntsman is, at least, sort of self-financing here and declaring it, and letting it be known. is that worrying in terms of his chances as a real candidate or encouraging because he has his own money to spend if he wants to? >> first of all, i don't understand the original statement. don't make a statement that you know can be disproved when the sec reports come out. and in terms of his fund-raising, i'm inclined to say, wait until the next cycle. i mean, jon huntsman has only been around for a little bit. i think his opening is that republicans who are not bachmann republicans decide that in the end he might have a bette
for it for the time being? mitt romney is happy, tim pawlenty, jon huntsman, chasing romney, and frankly chasing michele bachmann, not so happy about it. >>> john boehner isn't the only leader feeling heat from members of his own party. president obama is now hearing from a lot of democrats including senate democrats who aren't sure they like where the debt talks are heading. >>> joining me now senator claire mccaskill, she's a democrat from missouri and somewhat who likes to speak her mind. senator, nice to see you this morning. >> thanks, chuck. >> all right, the outlines of this deal that we're hearing about that would have cuts up front and the revenue conversation on taxes taking place over the next 18 months with penalties, if nothing gets implemented, is a broad outline. i know you want to see details. what do you think? >> well, you know, first of all, i've been working on cuts for a long time, and jeff sessions and i came close to passing a cap on spending even before last november's elections. so, i think that cuts are very important. having said that. i think it's going to be very imp
straight clinic. jon stewart is getting his fair share of attention for it today, too, for his particular take. >> you're having trouble, jon, having that urge to ridicule again, aren't you? >> yeah. presidential candidates' husbands trying to cure gay people while himself, just take a look. ♪ >> wow. okay. i'm coming in. >> thank you. i appreciate that. >> you need to get it out here. >>> welcome back to msnbc. i'm contessa brewer. a suicide attack killed at least four people at a memorial service for hamid karzai's assassinated brother. at least 15 people were wounded. >>> children exposed to second-hand smoke may be more likely to have learning or behavioral problems such as adhd. researchers say there could also be other factors. >>> the astronauts aboard the shuttle "atlantis" are getting a day off today to savor the historic experience and eat barbecue grilled chicken, beef brisket, baked beans and apple pie. so american. >>> amazon reportedly will launch a tablet in october to compete with the ipad. it will have a nine-inch screen and use google's android operating system. >>> wa
's why i think folks like mitt romney and others. >> jon huntsman. >> and others are very nervous about that rise. >> jon huntsman and tim pawlenty, they must all be nervous. >> absolutely. >> thanks so much. >> thank you so much. >>> now to the unseasonably early and particularly brutal national drought already taking a early and brutal drought. if the forecasts are accurate, this drought could become one of the nation's worsts. it comes on the heels of a string of severe weather systems in recent months, from that rare and remarkable dust storm in phoenix to the devastating and deadly tornadoes that stunned the midwest. so just why are we seeing these extreme systems? damon morgland is with friends of the earth, and he joins us this afternoon. good afternoon, damon. we add the flooding in north dakota, a string of poppy .tornadoes, are we seeing the beginning of climate change? >> it certainly seems to be the case. scientists have long been telling us these kind of intense, ferocious storms, floods, droughts and wildfires were exactly the kind of thing we'll be seeing. you know, as we
are glad to see him come. >>> next up, where is the loyalty? a one-time chief of staff to jon huntsman has passed over his former boss and endorsed mitt romney. his reasoning -- he's uniquely positioned to beat barack obama. he broke the news it was a little awkward. >>> speaking of awkward, it was just personal. apparently in new jersey last week governor chris christie used his line-item veto to strike funding for certainly health and social programs. the reaction from steve sweeney -- i wanted to punch him in his head. you know who he reminds me you have? mr. potter from "it's a wonderful life." that's what senator convenery called him. they're a longtime bipartisan allies. they put out a statement yesterday while saying wheel sweeney's comments were disrespectful, christie stands ready to work with him going forward. >>> the number of women in congress dropped for the first time in 30 years. whatever reason, the new york rising star, senator kirsten jill brand wants to reverse that trend. she joints us next. you're watching "hardball," only on msnbc. >> he was a good-looking guy before
politics. job hunt jon -- jon huntsman and his campaign manager parting ways today. and then of course you have the vice presidential nomination. they want chris christie to run for president, but he will not, hint, hint, pick him for vice president. and mark rubio announcing as if we have been waiting for it that he will make his first out of his home state speech as a senator next month at the reagan library in california. is that a thing? the new awkwardness of course with how fast things are changing in washington is that marko rubio has said as recently as this past weekend he probably will not vote to raise the debt ceiling. in march, he wrote an op-ed entitled why i won't raise the debt ceiling, and that will be awkward to take to the ronald reagan liberal as statements are being circulated from reagan that if you do not vote to raise it you are all but a traitor. and then there's bob mcdonald. bob mcdonald has had a wobbly takeoff as a national republican figure. just days after he was inaugurated as virginia's governor, the republican national party put him fourth as their face of
, let's end it with humor courtesy of jon stewart who offered the special take on a serious candidate tim pawlenty campaign. let's watch. >> well, let's see where governor tim pawlenty is. he has $4.5 million raised this quarter, but he struggles against the perception that he is -- former minnesota governor tim pawlenty kicked off three weeks of barnstorming in the anticipated fox straw poll with a warning that iowans should not waste their support on charismatic candidates who cannot win. >> ooh, tim pawlenty taking a bold stand against charisma. [ laughter ] hey, look, this is not a popularity contest. oh, it is? oh. >> will anyone in this field inspire the conservative voters or do we have the wait for someone like sarah palin or donald trum tp to have the charisma that jon stewart was f stewart. i think secondly, governor pawlenty has a point, we should be voting on records which means we shouldn't be voting for pawlenty. >> connie shorts on this hot friday. thank you very much. >> reporter: thank you. >>> now to the state of the american family and three new studies which show t
. tim pawlenty expected to bring in less than 5 million. jon huntsman raised a little over 2 million throwing his own money at 4 million. ron paul told supporters he's raised over $4 million. the number though everybody is watching what will the michele bachmann number be? she can transfer money from the house campaign. was she able to get in the internet and direct mail money in in time? will the number be forth of 5 million? will it be north of 10? that would be somewhat of a surprise. meanwhile, a siren for the supporters of rick perry, he's scouting out a vendor pot at the straw poll. it's our understanding perry won't get into the race until after he has the national day of prayer on august 6th. the straw poll is basically a week later. he wouldn't get in before then bupt the straw poll could be a way to see if that's the launching point and he gets in sometime in late august in time for those three debates that mitt romney and company are competing in in september. meanwhile, though there are no firm numbers yet, we're expecting a big quarter from team obama. fundraisers are pr
for jon huntsman. new polling puts the former ambassador at the back of the pack which could be why the white house seems to be focussing on a different exgovernor. at the bloomberg breakfast david, senior obama advisor took aim at mitt romney calling him a world class distortionist. i was sitting there at that breakfast. you don't expect direct answers to questions, but this was just tloup out there -- thrown out there. clearly they think that he is the guy to beat. >> i think there's no question that romney's stronger today than most i think professional class folks would have thought he would have been two months ago. the fundraising isn't as small as it was last cycle for romney it's stronger than the rest of the field. he's in strong position in new hampshire. he's the front runner. test hooth unbeatable. right now i don't think we have a candidate that's putting a strong challenge to romney. i think that's mie perry has a chance. >> if you talk to white house people they say it's an uncertain field. they don't know what rick perry is going to do. they don't know the michele ba
hampshire and herman cain is in ohio, and mitt romney and ron paul and jon huntsman will be in new hampshire and michele bachmann in iowa, and tim pawlenty will be in florida. so there are some impressions that none of them shop at tiffany's or at least one of them. >> well, if the primaries are about voters to commit to, right now they are on an awful lot of first dates. >> well, say i to thto them ton >> reporter: they say you don't get a second chance to make a first impression. >> lieutenant-commander of the navy. >> and your official number? >> 624787. >> it is time we had a president who cares. >> reporter: for presidential candidates that first impression is obvious made in the earliest campaign videos. >> hillary clinton has spent her life standing up for people others don't see. >> reporter: u it is how they want you to see them. >> george w. bush, a compassionate conservative leader. >> reporter: but they tell you about what type of candidate they will be and want to run on. >> i have great faith and hope about the future, because i believe in you. >> reporter: and in 2012, they ar

their stump speeches and focusing on the early primary states. mitd romney and jon huntsman both ramping up in new hampshire, even marching in the same parade in amherst yesterday. they're focusing early energy there instead of iowa where the more conservative michele bachmann and newt gingrich spent their fourth of july. and they walked in the same parade, too, in crystal lake, iowa. >> the patriotism of the american people will rise to the occasion and overcome these challenges. >> we're going to spend a lot of time at the vfw halls talking about those who are part of the greatest generation, and guess what, there's also another greatest generation coming up in this country. >> together we make a team that can't be beat. >> let's bring in our company, former governor ed rendell and editorial page editor for "the washington examiner," mark tapscott. gentlemen, good to see you. good morning. >> good morning. >> so the moderates are in new hampshire, the conservatives are in iowa. is it a coincidence, governor, or a strategy? >> no, it's a strategy. they'll meet in south carolina and florida

, that is where the numbers fall right off of a cliff. tim pawlenty, and ron paul, and jon huntsman all coming in under $5 million. pawlenty in fact is seeing the fund-raising numbers closer to herman cain's than mitt comeny's, but newt gingrich is going in the wrong direction, because he is reported to be $1 million in debt. and as for barack obama, they are saying that his is certain to meet the goals when the forms are filed next week. obama officials say they have nearly 500,000 individual donors give this quarter which is nearly five times the number that the bush/cheney re-election bid began with in 2003. now, into the money chase with "huffington post" social impact reporter, and analyst alex wagner. alex, the republicanings knew they would be outspent by president obama, and are they prepared to be this outspent by obama? >> no, this is not good news. that internal memo, romney had set a $50 million goal, and the fact that she is not meeting the 2007 numbers is ugly, and you compare it with the fact that there are predictions that the obama campaign will make $1 billion in fund-raising
tim pawlenty and jon huntsman are barely hanging on. and newt gingrich's campaign is on life support. so is this it? or is michele bachmann emerging as the tea party's battering ram against the willard mitt romney? joining me now is richard wolfe and with me, editor at large for salon.com, joan walsh. let me ask you first. is the bachmann threat a real threat, richard? >> well, she is a threat herself to mitt romney. but i actually think the space that she represents is more of a threat. look, she needs to call donald trump to figure out how this movie ends. can you rise very quickly on this kind of platform and then you sink very quickly. but what she is showing and what trump showed before her is that there is space for a populist insurgeant type of tea party candidate who can capture the spirit driving the base here. i personally don't think it will be her. i think it is going to be someone like rick perry or sarah palin but she is peaking too early. the one thing you don't do is too early in the summer before. >> are they waiting joan for another tea party hero to come from the w
trouble, jon, having that urge to ridicule again? >> yeah, presidential candidate's husbands trying to cure gay people while -- >> uh-huh. okay. >> wow. okay. ah -- i'm coming in. >> oh, really? >> you need to get it out. what's your body wanting you to say? >> i don't know. something like -- he's so gay, he calls "top gun "that he volleyball movie. oh, my god! wow. >> no. no. >> aren't you -- aren't you -- ever tempted by this stuff? >> of course, i'd love to say, dr. marcus bachmann buys brawny towels for the packaging. i have that in me. >> i know. >> so gay, richard simmons tells him to tone it down. >> any [ bleep ] -- >> oh, no! no. >> interesting area they're working here. anyway, speak of bachmann, she may need brush up on her yiddish. specifically, pronunciation of chutzpah. >> the president doesn't want to the confronted with spending. he has a lot of chutzpah. he spent trillions on the stimulus. it failed. >> that's right up with her history. >>> finally, good-bye and good luck to the producer of "hardball" all these years. she's done great work day in and day out. sorry
. it had dropped to 4.5%. during that same period of time you had 7 to 8 mill jon jobs created in the united states of america, so the bush tax cuts did exactly what they were supposed to do. unfortunately everything went awry when nancy pelosi took over the house of representatives with her philosophy of government and senator harry reid took over the suns senate, and with the threats that those two and their philosophies posed to the job creators in america, you saw our unemployment immediately start to go the wrong direction, but the facts are there, look at the department of labor statistics. >> sir, sir, i need to get to the -- >> the deficit declined during this same period of time. >> i need to get to the debt ceiling. the fact is those tax cuts are still in place, so the fact that anyone got in office didn't change the tax code at all, which is not the statement you made. >> in january of 2007. >> so the fact that congress changed has nothing to do with the tax cuts, they're still in play and unemployment is 9.2, so we can have different opinions, we can't have differen
is as arresting as that of jon huntsman and newt gingrich both of whom have ridden off into the sunset. >> definitely. pawlenty has had a problem with not being terribly charismatic and he the black hole of charisma in some ways, and at this point he is falling in the polls, and he was not high up to begin with, so he needs to do something to get his name out there. and you know, he had a problem at the debate when he refused to stand by his comments about mitt romney and people were questioning whether he was tough enough for this. this is not a problem for bachmann, because nobody questions whether she is tough enough. >> absolutely. >> so this is another moment where he needs to either stand up and make a name for himself or he might as well hang it up and go home. >> speaking of michele bachmann, and this pray away the gay story and her husband, it doesn't seem to go away, does it? it gained more fuel after video surfaced of gay barbarians going to the clinic and making a scene. last week marcus bachmann said he is neither homophobic nor converting a gay orientation, but it appears
